[Bachelor Spoilers Warning: This report contains The Bachelorspoilers that reveal who Zach Shallcross picked as his Final 2 bachelorettes and his winner and will spoil The Bachelor season for you.]
The Bachelor is heading into its fifth episode Monday, February 20 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC, but Zach and his remaining bachelorettes have already reached the international part of their journey.
Zach and the cast will be shown traveling to London for the next week of dates.
"Not everything goes according to plan, leaving Zach in a never-before-seen scenario which could drastically alter the journey ahead," ABC teased in a press release of what's to happen next.
Zach's week in London begins with a one-on-one date with Gabi Elnicki, a 25-year-old account executive from Pittsford, VT.
Gabi receives "the complete royal treatment," according to the network, with guest appearances from stylist Rachel Fanconi and Royal Butler Grant Harrold.
Gabi and Zach will play with a bunch of Corgi dogs and also enjoy a performance from UB40.
But a group date intended to take Zach and a group of women across the city "goes awry" when "a mysterious knock at the door leads to Bachelor history being changed forever," teases ABC.
Based on a preview of the next episode, The Bachelor host Jesse Palmer gives the group of women some "unfortunate" and "really bad news."
The women are shown crying, saying, "I was not expecting that," and "I don't know where we go from here."
Zach also cries in an apparent Zoom chat about how his time in London was "robbed" from him.
"The million-dollar question now is, 'What are we going to do?'" Jesse asks Zach.
Zach is tasked with difficult decisions in unforeseen circumstances where anything can happen.

The standout women in the latest episode were Kat Izzo, a 26-year-old registered nurse from Tampa, FL, and Brooklyn Willie, a 25-year-old rodeo racer from Stillwater, OK, who each received a one-on-one date with Zach.
And The Bachelor star gave the group-date rose in The Bahamas to Ariel Frenkel, a 28-year-old marketing executive from New York City, NY.
In addition to Gabi, Kat, Brooklyn, and Ariel, other bachelorettes still in the running for Zach's heart include Aly Jacobs, a 26-year-old healthcare strategist from Atlanta, GA; Charity Lawson, a 26-year-old child and family therapist from Columbus, GA; and Greer Blitzer, a 24-year-old medical sales representative from Houston, TX.
Jess Girod, a 23-year-old e-commerce coordinator from Winter Springs, FL, will also appear in the next episode, along with Kaity Biggar, a 27-year-old ER nurse from Austin, TX; Kylee Russell, a 25-year-old postpartum nurse from Charlotte, NC; and Mercedes Northup, a 24-year-old nonprofit owner from Bloomfield, IA.
The Bachelor spoilers reveal Zach's date details, Rose Ceremony decisions, upcoming storylines, and eliminations leading up to Zach's winner, as recently reported by Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone.
So what happens in London on The Bachelor and how does the rest of the season unfold? Which bachelorettes make it all the way to the Final Rose Ceremony? Keep reading for all the spoilers that are currently out there!
Zach's The Bachelor season was filmed last fall and included stops around Europe
Zach's The Bachelor season began filming in late September 2022 at the famous Bachelor mansion in California.
Zach and some of his lucky bachelorettes visited the United Kingdom, Estonia and Hungry throughout his journey to find love.
The Bachelor season followed the show's usual production schedule and finished filming in late November with Zach's Final Rose Ceremony, but premiered three weeks later than the "first Monday of January" premiere date that The Bachelor historically begins airing on ABC.
Zach's The Bachelor season is "a bit of a throwback" and "a beautiful story"
Jesse Palmer told E! News in November that Zach's season "is a bit of a throwback."
"This season is a lot more about the romance and the love, and maybe a little bit less about the drama," explained Jesse, who starred on Season 5 of The Bachelor back in 2004.
Jesse also said on the "Bachelor Happy Hour" podcast in early January that Zach "really shines" throughout his season.
"I really think he comes through," Jesse teased. "He has a beautiful story, and I'm really excited for people to see it."
Zach "cries a lot" during The Bachelor and it's "the most emotional show"
"This is easily the most emotional show that I've hosted in the franchise to date," Jesse told E! News in November.
Jesse also told Us Weekly that The Bachelor bachelorettes were "really into Zach."
Jesse shared late last year, "Zach's so emotionally mature and he's a guy that's not afraid to wear his emotion on his sleeve. He's very, very intentional. This is easily the most emotional show that I've hosted in the franchise."
Jesse said Zach's season is "emotionally charged" because the bachelorettes really want to end up with Zach.
"It's a [totally] different vibe than I've [ever] had hosting any of the other shows," the host noted.
Carbone heard that Brooklyn was a pot-stirrer and happened to be in the middle of a lot of the drama.
"But from all I've been told, [Brooklyn] just liked to instigate things that seemingly would keep her on TV," Carbone reported in his blog.
Something that changed "the rest of the season" happens in London
After their time in the Bahamas, Zach and his 11 remaining The Bachelor bachelorettes reportedly flew to London, England for their fourth round of dates.
Gabriella "Gabi" Elnicki received the first one-on-one date and got a rose, but then there were no other group dates or one-on-one dates in London.
For nearly two months, Carbone didn't know what happened in London and why Zach missed out on his other two dates, other than something "kinda [changed] the landscape of the show."
"I was told this is something production had zero control over and they were scrambling to figure out what to do," Carbone wrote earlier this year, adding that the incident was unplanned and "had a significant impact on the production of the show."
However on February 6, Carbone updated his spoilers and revealed that Zach had tested positive for coronavirus while in London. After his date with Gabi, the rest of Zach's dates were canceled as a result.
Carbone isn't sure whether any of the women caught COVID-19 as well.
Zach did his Rose Ceremony in London over Zoom
Because Zach contracted COVID-19, he had to lead the fifth Rose Ceremony of the season via Zoom.
Carbone believes Zach ousted two bachelorettes during the Rose Ceremony in London.
And not only that, but Zach proposed marriage to Kaity and the pair got engaged!
Although it's been reported on social media that Gabi was the bachelorette who won Zach's heart, Carbone said he trusts his sources.
"I'll bet on myself... I don't reveal my sources or how I get any info. But with another spoiler out there for 2 months that's opposite of mine, now we can officially say one of us is dead wrong. Gonna make for a great finale night I tell ya," Carbone wrote.
Carbone apparently received "some info this past weekend" about Zach's winner that he felt comfortable running with.
Zach recently told Deadline that he "wouldn't trade" his experience on the show for anything, even though he had to endure some "ups and downs" to get to the finish line.
